Nanotechnology Lab

The Nanotechnology Laboratory is designed to serve graduate students and PhD candidates. The following experiments can be performed:

  • Physisorption and Chemisorption using the ASAP 2020 (Micromeritics) for determination of: surface area, pore volume, pore size distribution and metallic dispersion.
  • Chemisorption using the AutoChem 2920 (Micromeritics) can determine percent of metal dispersion, active metal surface area, surface acidity, BET surface area. Some other experiments can be performed such as temperature-programmed reduction (TPR), desorption (TPD), oxidation (TPO). The exhaust gases can be analyzed by an on-line Mass spectrometer.
  • Gas pycnometer (Accupyc II 1340, Micromeritics) for the measurement of density of catalysts.
  • Microreactor (PID, Eng and Tech) for testing of the activity of catalysts in gas phase; the gases are analyzed on-line by a Micro-GC.
